Like a feeling of ocean...
Gérard Blanc is a French singer who started his musical career as a founding member of the group "Windings" in 1963. Group renamed "Les Balthazars" in 1967. But it was in 1970 that he saw his destiny completely changed when he joined the group "Martin Circus". Mythical group of the 70s in France, this group will make itself famous in particular through 2 flagship titles that are "Je m’éclate au Sénégal" but above all the cult "Marylène". The year 1987 saw the breakup of the group and the official starting point of the singer's solo career with the release of the single "Une autre histoire which sold over 850,000 copies, a colossal success at the time. In 1988 he released the album "Ailleurs pour ailleurs" which contained the hits "Du soleil dans la nuit" which will rank 10th in the french Top50 as well as "Sentiment d'océan" with more modest but certain success. His last major success will be the single "Dis tout bas dis" released in 1989. Unfortunately, the life of this multi-talented artist ended in January 2009 as a result of complications linked to a cardiac malaise which had occurred a few months earlier.

1975 ... all Dancefloor in France are literally on fire thanks to this track which will remain as one of the biggest hits of the 70's on the French side. Thank you the Beach Boys and especially thank you Martin Circus, group which launches the best that is the singer's career
1978 ... the group will know a second - and last - mega hit three years later with a title 1000 % Disco
1986 ... the title which will launch for good his solo career and explode his notoriety as a singer in his own right. He signed one of the biggest Dance hits of the 80s on the French side, just that. HU-GE !
1987 ... magnificent humanist ode which shows all the versatility of the artist's writing talent
1988 ... the dance hits follow one another at an impressive speed. A new example with this title which will remain as one of the biggest hits of that year
1988 ... the WONDER ! An Ultimate slow with incredible lyricism that magically suspends time ... At the pinnacle of his art !
1989 ... his last notorious hit. After 3 years at the top, the artist will experience a slow but inexorable decline. Like many others ...
1989 ... a title of end of decade which swings strongly, with more than certain quality but passed somewhat unnoticed ...
1990 ... a change of decade which will unfortunately be fatal for the artist. Difficult to compete against the competition ...
1991 ... and quality is not lacking. But faced with the furious Eurodance and Eurobeat, how to fight ...?
2003 ... after a decade that has seen him slowly but surely die out, the Phoenix is trying to rise from the ashes. Wasted effort...
2006 ... yet another return attempt. Again aborted. And yet, as always, there is inspiration, but that is no longer enough. Since a long time...
